Hey All! Welcome to the depths of a Bum’s mind. Here we will post whatever we may deem necessary to say out loud on the interweb (while remembering not to destroy our futures) Once a week one of the Bums will post something for every single reader out there, probably only ourselves to be honest, but it’s the thought that counts.
Basically the Best Band

Feb. 18, 2018

Hello, it is I the famous Buddy Badonkulus Bum. I am here today to tell you about my extraordinary, fabulous, famous life. It all started when I was three years old, I was watching Ariane Aberfert, my soon to be idol, and I was inspired. Of course, now my band and I are the idols of many including Ariane Aberfert, but she is still awesome!! (like me) I met my band members, Billy and Bee, for the first time when I was 7 years old and it was instant fame in my eyes. We were going to be great!!!!!!!!! REALLY GREAT!!!

And so the world got ready for Luna and the Lovegoods. From then it was easy, show after show. This brings us to where my story takes place. The past two weeks my band has been on a world tour. Our first stop was in Vegas at the Lotus Casino, where we played our hit single “Barry’s Gone” the fans could not get enough of us. After that, we went to Mexico City and L.A, New York, Chicago and Houston. Our last stop was Flin Flon, Manitoba where we met Josiah Flintbbatey Flonatin himself. He even gave us free badges. I am his biggest fan by the way.

My band and I had a blast, but now we have returned to our small home town on Pluto. Billy and Bee have decided to join me on Pluto for a while. It is good to see all my family again after all these years and I even got a pet Garaseal (for more information on the garaseal see our published work) I named him Bob. I am so sorry to disappoint all of my fans but I am done my writing for today. For more information on fabulous me see “Meet the Bums”. Stay tuned for more blog posts from me and my radical Bum Family.

SNOW DAY! (well sort of)

Feb. 11, 2018

Hey people, welcome to my first blog post! After this weeks snowfall, I’m sure about one thing; some kids will use any excuse to get out of school. I live in Calgary, and I’m in grade 8 at a French school. On Wednesday this week, there was snow storm warning, and the weather channel said that we would get 25 to 36 cms of snow. Lots of the schools were sending out emails saying to keep up to date in case they chose to close the school on Thursday. Tons of people were talking about snow days. The last snow day Calgary had was twenty years ago on March 17th, 1998.

So Thursday morning comes, mom checks her email and Twitter to see if the schools are closed, no luck. All the CBE schools were still open. My sisters and I got ready for school as if it was any other morning, but we left 10 minutes early so we could get up this big hill that Billy’s school is on. During the regular drop off, I’m texting people in my class to see if they’re coming to school. One guy said that his car “couldn’t move” and that his door was “ frozen shut”. I asked him how he knew that his car couldn’t move if his door was frozen shut, and he said that it was in between two snow banks. I told this to my mom as we went through the Tim Hortons drive-through. In response, she said, “try a shovel!”. I texted this to him and received no response. My other friend texted me saying “SNOW DAY” I told her that none of the schools had closed. She made some excuse that traffic was really bad, which was lame ‘cuz it wasn’t and it wasn’t even a half day so it wouldn’t matter if she was a couple of hours late.

This other guy said that he “just got up” so he didn’t think he was going to school. What a lame excuse. He could still come, he would only be a few minutes late. Then last of all, there was this other guy who actually just owned up to it. “Nope I’m not coming through this mess, I’m staying home!” Haha, I went on to convince him that we had homework due that day and that if you hadn’t handed it in at the end of the class you would get an incomplete. Hahaha, he totally fell for it.

My other friend just left in the middle of the morning cuz she asked if her mom could come and pick her up, lame! So yeah, I think at the end of the day people had already written Thursday off as a snow day, so they didn’t come. We generally have a class of 24 kids on Thursday we had 14, then 13. It was actually kind of nice and peaceful without all those loud annoying people.

Jeff went to the neighbours garden to eat some lettuce, but there was none there either. Jeff went to ten gardens in town, but he didn’t find lettuce in any of them. On Jeff’s eleventh garden there was no lettuce. Jeff realized he was not going to find any lettuce, so he decided to eat the cabbage instead.

Someone opened the skylight, climbed in and knocked out the driver. I heard this happening in the front so I kicked the person out of the car and the driver woke up.

A: My advice to my fans is to follow their dreams and read Harry Potter.

Buddy’s Favourite Book

Star Wars:

The Stress Awakens

Jan. 27, 2018

Hello, for the first time. Semester One is finally done and I’m here to tell you about the phenomenal final project I did for my technical theatre final project. Just a bit of background, Tech Theatre is a class that teaches you all about the backstage aspects of theatrical productions. Light and sound design, stage management, set design and a touch of construction, hair, makeup and costuming. The final project is where the students are put into groups and have to create a production telling a story, without “actors”. There are still people on stage but they are acting more as props than characters. So this year the theme was Star Wars: A New Hope. My group was made up of amazing individuals who all contributed to the final product as best as they could. I built a giant X-wing fighter plane, death star, Vader mask and Millenium Falcon out of cardboard and papier mache from scratch. I have to say that the project was extremely stressful and on the edge of plunging me into endless anxiety attacks. In the end, everything worked out and I got a solid 100 on the overall project. Thanks to all of my hard work, I have been appointed Prop mistress on the Drama departments spring production of Wild Abandon: A Study of Steve by Daniel Macivor. But more on that later…

Keep it together fools,

Bennett Bum
